Description

Whether you're accessing backcountry lines by heli or your own power, the Head Monster 95 O.B. feeds your need for untouched powder lines.

The Head Monster 95 O.B. uses AirCoat hollow glass technology to create lightweight touring ski, yet the 95mm waist gives you enough underfoot to enjoy the ride down. Ski these boards inbounds or venture beyond the ropes with some randonee bindings. The lightweight touring frame won't kill you on the climbs. A pre-waxed tour top sheds snow when you're cutting fresh tracks to your favorite backcountry bowl. The liquimetal laminate gives you a reactive ride for wide open bowls or tighter tree runs, and the deep sidecut makes snappy, quick turns on variable snow a breeze.

I have been unable to find the weight of these skis in any specs online. Does anybody know?

Responded on

I have a pair. I seem to remember that they are about 6.25 lbs for the 181s.

I have the 191s and have not yet mounted anything on them beacuase i'm basically waiting for the next time i head out west. However my current touring setup turned out to be pretty heavy so i'm considering mounting these and using them in the White Mountains backcountry (tuckerman ravine, king ravine, etc...). What i'm worried about is whether or not the foam core (thats what it is, right?) will hold up to the bumps that form on the 2.5 - 3 mile trails that lead out of the bowls. I would sometimes be carrying 3 days of winter overnight gear. Would this take an unreasonable toll on skis like these or am i overreacting?

This is a wood core ski, you'll be fine with any AT binding.

awesome. I have the monster i95s at 191 as well. What skis did you end up putting on the Brian? (or anyone else)

Responded on

In the end i never ended up touring on them - too soft for anything technical.

Up, Down, Happy.

These skis are perfect for their purpose. They are not made to go rip the resort chair lap after lap. While they are fun to ski, they are made to climb up and ski down, as they are designed to be super light, yet resilient and stiff enough to support you on the way back down. If you are looking to go trekking, skinning, or any type of backcountry adventuring then these are the perfect weapon.

These Bad Boys do it all

I have been skiing the 181 for 3 seasons now and they really do it all. I am 6'0" 175 lb and have a background in racing, ski instruction and all around going for it. I use these both on and off piste. They handle high speed cruising as well as the bottomless champagne pow, and won't let you down in the crud. They don't like the bumps because they are not quick enough but any where else they excell.

I'm 6'4" and 190 lps. What is a good length?

Responded on

How do you ski? I'd probably go with 191 at your weight and height. Especially if you're really aggressive. Do you like straightlining, or dropping cliffs?If it's for an in bounds intermediate then I'd go with 181. Yes, that and start eating son!

Here are the only two reviews I found online, both positive. I just ordered a pair of 181s here. I'm 6'3", 175, I ski pretty aggressively, will mount with Dynafit TLTs and plan to use them as a Colorado BC ski primarily. Happy shopping!

Go 181cm's, 171's would be to short. If your advanced or ski big open mountains go bigger.
